UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what precisely is their function and why are they available in data centers all around the globe?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems which are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in case there are interruptions in the main power source or the current is unstable and unable to sustain the proper operation of the machines situated in the facility. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it is a powerful battery that works non-stop. It is connected to both the power network and the servers all of the time, so when the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which prevents the machines from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is definitely an engine that can deliver the required electric power to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In case there is an outage, the UPS provides the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the primary power source is restored.
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator in Shared Hosting
The 99.9% network and web server uptime guarantee that we provide is, to some extent, a result of the electric power backup setup we have in every of the 3 data centers in which we offer shared hosting
packages - in Chicago (USA), in London (UK), and in Sydney (Australia). If you acquire a new account to develop or move your sites, it'll be created on a progressive cloud platform that consists of numerous clusters taking care of your content. Each and every hosting server inside the specific cluster provides its own efficient enterprise-class UPS to keep it working no matter what, until a number of power generators boot up and give the necessary power for the entire data center to remain operating for a lot of hours. You'll not notice anything even when there is an interruption, as our backup units can easily power all the devices and we will not need to reduce the total number of working web servers or the network equipment which deals with the traffic to your Internet sites.

We have taken all measures to prevent any service disruptions caused by a electric power outage, so if you use a semi-dedicated server
account for your Internet sites, you'll enjoy a fast and stable hosting service at all times.

The latter are potent enough to keep everything functioning at top capacity, so we will not have to shut down any web servers or to use less network devices, which could slow the loading speed of your Internet sites or affect their overall performance.
